Adam Lambert will be taking on lead vocal duties during the Oscars performance-Best Actor nominee Rami Malek's singing voice wasn't featured in Bohemian Rhapsody (insert joke pointing out that Bradley Cooper did all his own singing in A Star Is Born and yet is seemingly destined to lose to Malek here).

Quoting a line from the iconic Queen song "Bohemian Rhapsody", the Academy said: "Is this the real life?"

"We will rock The Oscars Feb 24th".

The band have been performing under the name Queen + Adam Lambert including two of the four original members, Brian May on guitar and Roger Taylor on drums.

Speaking to People previous year, the singer revealed that he was "really nervous" when he was first asked to take on the frontman role once occupied by the late rock icon Freddie Mercury.

'This is not my music that I wrote: This is me, as a guest, with one of the greatest rock bands of all time, singing the songs that one of the greatest rock singers of all time brought to life'.

"Freddie is irreplaceable. There's no way to compare to him".

Quick pitch: Musical biopic of rock band Queen and its star-crossed singer, Freddie Mercury, waves its banner all over the place: from Levis to leather trousers, superstardom to squabbles, leave-taking to Live Aid.

The two acts, who have been collaborating and touring since 2011, will join a line-up of performers including Jennifer Hudson, who will sing her Oscar-nominated track, "I'll Fight", and Bette Midler, who will sing her Mary Poppins Returns song, "The Place Where Lost Things Go," which is also nominated for Best Song. Malek won Best Actor and the film won Best Motion Picture-Drama.
